Re: Saracens Cap Investigation

One has to question whether their European titles will be withdrawn and presumably that decision is one for that governing body. One could argue that without a squad assembled in breach of the premiership regulations their ability to qualify for and "win" European titles would not have been possible.

Re: Saracens Cap Investigation

Relieved that a breach of regulations has been upheld but saddened that it occurred at all. Not a great advertisement for the game.

Re: Tigers vs Gloucester

Well that performance eased some of the pain from the morning. Thought Olowofela looks to have got his pace back and Is playing with some confidence. Forwards toughed it out which was great to see. Lavanini certainly looks like he enjoys a collision. Hard fought and deserved 4 points.

No substitute for power. As the old adage goes forwards win games backs decide by how many

Hopefully Les Cusworth has given him some insight regarding living and playing in a foreign country.

Re: Where's Geordie?

Indeed regrettably like players, executives do not manage to perform at the same level forever or manage to adapt to a changing environment. It's just life.

Re: I hope Mike Ford goes out to The World Cup Final

I think the club should send a representative to support our boys. I suggest we send the captain who can then watch his brother hopefully win a World Cup. An appropriate reward for the years of service both have given to Tigers. He can travel with Mike :smt001

Re: Where's Geordie?

We have changed coaches, we have changed players. There is however one constant during our 6-7 year decline, the chairman and chief exec. Sometimes a correlation does reveal the cause.

Re: Wales v SA

It's not the most thrilling of matches but then I'm more relaxed when I don't care who wins.

Re: Forward passes

Certainly a lot missed or ignored these days. Can almost hear the ref saying "Well yes but it was only a little bit forward so play on"

Re: ENG vs NZ - RWC Semi

I know he is a bit of an anti christ on here but a shout out for Farrell’s captaincy which has been spot on, backed up brilliantly by George and Lenny Is he Englands best 10, probably not. Is he Englands best 12, possibly not. Is he a leader and a fighter, he most certainly is. A real leaders perfo...

Taufua off, fails HIA and doesn't return - sitting on the bench chatting away afterwards though.
Thats disappointing. Hopefully he passes the return to play protocols quickly and we see him in a Tigers shirt before December.
